i recieved a phone call about 5 weeks ago from a subbie i have worked for in the past about taping a new hotel in Edinburgh ( i live just outside Edinburgh) and if i would be interested, my reply was yes but only if there was a decent amount of work to keep me going as i was already working and despite the wages not being great the guy had about 4 months work in front of him, his reply was "dont worry about work its 175 rooms and theres miles of firetaping to be done first" ok then i'll go for it. guess what's happened 3 and a half weeks in to the job he came on site at 3.30 today and says sorry mate but i need the work for my books boys you,ll need to finish up today:mad::mad:
do these "contract managers" as they call themselves forget what it was like to be on the tools with bills to pay and a family to feed,
phoned up the company i was working for before but he doesent think hes got enough for me. i am f*****g fuming! and would like to give the dick head a :blackeye:

Been there mate know how your feeling. To many people come off the tools and either forget or just not care about those trying to make a living. Bastards one and all

Unlucky and I can sympathise, I would be bitter too if i had given up work. Unfortunately gambling on a big jackpot doesn't always pay off and most of us have learned the hard way after crossing paths with bullshitters before. You can have your say Stu, please tell us all.

Sorry to hear that sq ames, bet thats the last you'll do for him. Please spill the beans in said members section so no one else gets stung.
DMC, you're bang on- these cnuts just dont care if you got bills to pay or mouths to feed.
Its been a while since we had a good moan about a contractor in the members bit so get his name out here!!! (once ya been paid, obviously)
